The Wii U supply is currently much more limited than Xbox & ps3, so its not really that suprising.


strange as am i seeing wii u in every store here.


You want a prize? No stores near me have any stock, but then again I don't need to tell you that different locations yield different demands.

Amazon.com: Only available at scalper prices
Gamestop.com: "Backordered", "Currently unavailable online".
Target.com: Basic (white) version available (was unavailable earlier today), Black SKUs "currently unavailable online".
BestBuy.com: "Sold out online".

Stock issues exist until things like these have been sorted out.

Which is ironic considering that many people believe that the Wii U multi-plat games look only as good as their Sony/MS counterparts.

Although a better starting point (graphics wise) for the 'previous gen,' that is not a good starting point to be at for the advent of MS/Sony's new consoles.

If you're looking for a graphical showcase for what a system can do, you shouldn't be looking at multiplats. Come on man, you know that.

So, Wii U had one of the best console launches this whole decade and that makes it doomed? Stay classy, fanboys.

To begin...what hype? The Wii U had and still has no hype--those mentioning "hype" are clearly deluded to the launch of this system. Lack of launch titles? Are most of you twelve, missing the launch of every other home console in existence? The Wii U is out for a week, it sells better than the 360 and PS3 in their first weeks, though we will compare the sales of the Wii U to a system which has been upgraded like three or four times now and is targeting a casual audience with cheaper prices and Kinect? Now I know why the United States has so many problems.


Yeah, the media hype has been average-above average. But the anti-hype has been through the roof. When you consider that factor the Wii U's sales are actually really impressive.

The Wii had a lot of **** thrown at it no matter how well it sold. The Wii U was going to get a massive hate campaign whether if it was overpowered or not.

Look at all the hate the Pro Controller got. That was built to be what the "hardcore" claim they wanted Nintendo to do. Imagine if the Wii U was everything the Pro controller stands for. Do you think there would be nothing but love? No, they would have just reverted back to calling Nintendo kiddy again and regurgitate the "third party game don't sell on Nintendo" talking point.

And the back pedaling begins...


There is no back peddling. They are comparing a 1 Week system, to that of a 7 Year system that has far more games and even had Black Friday deals on the system itself. Which if you know Black Friday people generally are jumping on the deals and not full priced products.


The thing is... the 360 has been out for 7 years... if its STILL selling THAT well after 7 years, its doing pretty well off.

So we should look at ZombiU and NSMBU?

Usually new consoles sell a lot better than old hardware. .


Playstation 2 Worldwide 153.19 million
Xbox 360 Worldwide 70 million

OMG PS2 sold more than 360!!!
Clearly 360 is failing cause it sold less and is newer!!


Linetrix destroyed by his own devices. lol

Well, WiiU's not out in Europe or Japan (I think?) yet. So wait for that first...

What? That won't change anything.

Yeah, because only the sales of one continent matter.
